West Virginia Basketball Senior Night - Walking the Carpet

MORGANTOWN, W. Va. - West Virginia's senior basketball players, managers and athletic trainers walked down the carpet for the final time in their careers prior to Wednesday night's game against Texas Tech.

In the video above, seniors Richard RomeoJonathan Holton and Jaysean Paige are honored in West Virginia's Senior Night ceremony prior to the Mountaineers' matchup with Texas Tech.

Romeo, a native of White Sulphur Springs, W.Va., has played in 18 games in his four-year career with the Mountaineers. West Virginia finished 13-19 in his freshman season, and has improved steadily since then. He is the only memeber of the senior class to be in the program for all four years.

Holton, who came to West Virginia in 2013 from Palm Beach State Community College and the University of Rhode Island before that, has been a major contributor for the Mountaineers over the past two seasons. He has played an integral role in West Virginia's defensive dominance this season, serving as the head of the press and supplying boundless energy on both ends of the floor.

Jaysean Paige has been the Mountaineers' leading scorer since the early stages of the season, averaging 14.3 points per game off the bench. The Jamestown, New York native transferred to WVU from Moberly Area Community College in 2014, and has been a force to be reckoned with ever since. For all intents and purposes, he is the frontrunner to be named Big 12 Sixth Man of the Year at season's end.
